good morning, america. megamillions mania right now. as millions line up across the country for a chance at half a billion dollars. up to 1 million tickets sold an hour. millions asking, what if i win? i would go straight to the 99-cent store and blow their mind. this video. zimmerman's father speaks out for the first time. >> reporter: the flightening moments. was ate manic attack or something far more severe.
7:01 am
prank call. justin bieber's big backfire. the star tweets out her number. now her phone is ringing off the hook. >> justin, oh, my god, call me back. i love you. >> how this tough-talking grandma is taking on the biebs right now. hellhello, everyone. that grandmother giving a finger wag. a lot to get to this morning. including what could be a dramatic piece of evidence. a new video of george zimmerman at the police station just about 40 minutes or so after the incident, it's raising real questions about his side of the story right now. people watching that video closely. another video, as well, that is causing a parenting storm. alicia silverstone posting
7:02 am
footage of how she's feeding her baby boy. it's causing a dust-up right now. let's begin with the lottery fever. so much of america catching it right now. tickets for the mega millions lottery going strong on sale. >> reporter: people have been coming out here all morning for a chance at the biggest prize in american history. a really long time. this is not mega millions. it's megamania. >> thank you. >> reporter: the lottery tells us they're selling as many as 1 million tickets an hour. >> dreams. it only takes one dollar. >> reporter: the dreams now dreamt from new york -- >> i'm going to pay off my brother's mortgage, my sister's mortgage.
7:03 am
>> reporter: kansas -- >> early retirement. >> vacation. >> reporter: people lining up everywhere for their shot. >> you gotta be kidding me. >> reporter: just how much is $500 million? you would afford this insanely pricy ferrari, 1600 of them. that's nearly five miles' worth. your chances of winning are one in 176 million. to put that in perspective, if you circled the equator, buying a ticket every single mile, you would have to circle the globe 7,000 times to guarantee victory. the most cautious characters know you have to play to win. >> there they are. we'll see. >> i would go straight to the 99
7:04 am
cents store and blow their mind. >> reporter: by buying 25 tickets, you increased your odds. they're 1 in 7 million. that's seven times worse than getting struck by lightning. >> 25 tickets? >> $25. i bought an ice cream cone, so the trip wasn't a waste. >> i think that's the better deal. we turn to the latest on the trayvon martin shooting. and the brand new police surveillance video. that man is george zimmerman, being brought to the police station in handcuffs that night. the video raising questioning now about his side of the story. matt gutman still in sanford, florida, with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, robin. that video takes us into the police station behind me, barely 30 minutes after george zimmerman shot trayvon martin. there appear to be no sers injuries on him.
7:05 am
we've gone over the tape multiple times. no blood on the face, the back of hi head, or his shirt. this video shows george zimmerman entering the police department at 7:54, minutes after he shot and killed trayvon martin. zimmerman is cuffed, hands behind his back. these are the first images of zimmerman since the shooting. zimmerman said martin attacked him, cold cocking him and slamming his head on the ground. in the police report, it said zimmerman was bleeding from the back of his head and nose. in the video, the police officer is wiping something off the jacket. the video is grainy. it's hard to find signs of blood. >> trayvon martin walked up to him, asked him, do you have a
7:06 am
[ bleep ] problem? george said, i don't have a problem. >> reporter: overnight, this man was interviewed in shadow, identified as george zimmerman's father. >> george said, no, i don't have a problem. and started reaching for his cell phone. at that point, he was punched in the nose. and martin said something to the effect of you're going to die now or you're going to die tonight. >> reporter: martin's 16-year-old girlfriend was on the phone with him just before he was shot. >> the only thing trayvon told that man was why are you following me? >> reporter: many people expresses outrage. >> it's a tragedy and a shame. >> reporter: it appears to be opening a national conversation on race. addressed overnight in an abc news town hall by robin roberts.
7:07 am
>> the best way to protect young men and women of color is to stop the profiling, stop the judgment. that requires a truthful dialogue, like we're having now. >> reporter: we spoke to martin's family over night. they said this video is the shoeking gun. robin? >> matt, thank you. we bring in legal analyst dan abrams. is this the smoking gun? we're told he was beaten up. the video don't appear to show that. >> it's a significant piece of evidence. the authorities have had this. they've seen it. they know it. i think in lar in the court of public opinion, among those who have been inclined to believe zimmerman, this could be a game-changer. suddenly, his defense of, my nose was broken. i think that was an important one. we can't see everything on this
7:08 am
video. but there's nothing to indicate that that was the case. and so, i do think this becomes very significant in particular in the national debate, and i think it will be significant as the authorities and the state authorities and the federal authorities look into this case. >> and the timeline is important. as matt said, it was barely half an hour after the killing. >> that's right. you would expect to see something. we were talking to the professor about what to expect from a broken nose, either blood or swelling. some indication that his nose was broken. this is definitely significant. both in terms of the investigation and -- >> we're waiting for the grand jury. is this something they would show to the grand jury? >> unclear. for grand juries, you don't need to show all the evidence. in a high-profile case, you want
7:09 am
to cover your bases and show everything. this is kind of proving what zimmerman is saying. a grand jury will probably see something like this. now to the latest in the jetblue captain who went berserk and tried to bring down his flight from new york to vegas. dan harris is here with more. good morning, dan. >> reporter: good morning. we know this incident was worse and scarier than we first thought. the pilot's friends are calling it totally out of character, pilot osbon is in a hospital and could face charges that would land him in prison for up to 20 years. the runup to this meltdown, captured on this video obtained by cnn, began before the jetblue flight took off from jfk airport. the captain showed up late and
7:10 am
missed the crew briefing. he wasn't acting strangely at first. as the flight took off, he allegedly turned to the first officer and began a series of incoherent statements about being evaluated by someone. next, he yelled over the radio the air traffic control and instructed them to be quiet, turning off the radio, dimming the monitors, and turns to the first officer and delivering a sermon about sins in vegas. >> no wonder he was in great degree of concern. no wonder he took the steps he did. this is exactly what we want a first officer to do. >> reporter: 3 1/2 hours into the flight, he left the cockpit. he dprabed a flight attendant's happened and banged on the lavatory door. he was making comments about 150 souls on board and tried to
7:11 am
force his way into the cockpit, which the first officer had locked. that's when passengers jurned in to restrain him. in his hometown in georgia, friends say he was fun-loving. >> if you don't know clayton, don't be judging him by what you see on tv. >> reporter: he's been obsessed with flying since he was a little kid. his stepmother released a statement overnight saying the last time she spoke to him, he was happy and upbeat, like he always is. george, back to you. let's bring in dr. richard besser. you heard the description. happy. he always is. no history as far as we know of mental illness. jetblue called it a panic attack. it had to be more serious. >> this doesn't sound like panic attack. you'll see a sudden onset of
7:12 am
intense fear that something is happening to you personally. you're concerned about your own safety. you don't have delusions. the experts i talked to are thinking about an acute psychotic break. you have a disconnect from reality. you can have hallucinations, aggressive behavior. >> you enter a completely different world. what can cause it? >> it depends on the age. we don't know his history. in someone who is 49, everyone i've talked to said a reaction to a drug. a prescribed drug or an illegal drug. >> it could explain why he was disoriented from the beginning of the day. >> that's right. add to that loss of sleep or dehydration. the second thing is manic depression, bipolar disorder. maybe something not diagnosed or
7:13 am
something he didn't want people to know about. >> some accounts say it could be linked to brain tumor. >> way, way down on the list, they'll look for that. something inside the head, a brain tumor, a stroke, a nuance, a seizure problem. that could cause it. >> what are doctors looking at? >> his urine, his blood, test it for drugs. check his blood for problems in terms of blood sugar, any metabolic and chemistry problems in his blood. they're going to do a scan to make sure nothing is doing on in his head. and a detailed history. now to josh and the rest of the news. breaking news in the last two hours. word that man is taken into police custody in philadelphia after trying to board a flight to san francisco carrying a bottle of explosive liquid.

account, people are not liking it. and staying classy. will ferrell playing the flute there. we have to begin with a serious turn in the horrific murder of a single mom in vermont. police have arrested a husband and wife team. melissa jenkins lost her life trying to be a good samaritan. this just breaks your heart. >> reporter: it does. this morning, that married couple is behind bars facing second-degree murder charges and possibly life in prison. the woman in this case didn't stand by her man. she actually help pd commit and cover up a cold-hearted murder. this is the husband and wife they say brutally murdered melissa jenkins. >> they knew miss jenkins and
7:32 am
had snow-plowed her driveway a couple of years ago. >> reporter: what allegedly was intended to be a sexual encounter sunday night went wrong. according to court documents, allen prue wanted to get a girl. his wife then allegedly called jenkins saying they needed help, luring her to this rural road with a phony story. jenkins 2-year-old son was this the backseat. left all alone after the prues dragged off his mother. >> she was placed in the prue vehicle. mrs. prue turned around and continued to strangle her to make sure miss jenkins was dead. >> reporter: court documents say she called a friend because she was uncomfortable. >> we're entering pleas of not guilty on both accounts.

so much evidence here. the judge denied bail. i was surprised to see the charges are only second degree murder. >> so am i. i have to believe that will change at some point. you have two possible theories. premeditation. they said they're luring her. what more premeditation would you need? and secondly, one of the prosecutors said they believe there was some motive regarding sexual assault. and again, if it's done in the context of -- >> there is so evidence of that as well. >> that's another theory by which you can get a first degree murder. you have to wonder if they're trying to get one of them to turn on the other, starting with the lower charges. i don't know they need to cut a deal with anyone. they may have enough evidence to move forward. the wife is suggesting she didn't have anything to do with the murder. we have seen these couples

experiences before. it brings up all the horrific memories. >> remember, spousal privilege. we talk about this a lot. the ability of one spouse to say, my spouse can't testify against me, doesn't apply in a case like this. when the two of them are charged with a crime together. very often in these kinds of cases, the authorities try to get one to testify against the other. get one to provide the details. of how it happened. cut them a slightly better deal. and then, go for broke, so to speak, on the one they believe is more culpable. maybe we see that in a case like this. >> but as i said at the start, there seems to be so much evidence piling up. >> you have his confession. but as you point out, maybe she's going to say, no, that's not what happened. maybe she'll say she was forced. if she were to claim she was
7:36 am
forced, that is a situation where they might try to make a deal with her to testify against him. we'll have to see. but it does not make sense to me that in the long run, at least one of them will -- won't be charged with a higher crime. >> dan, thanks. we'll see you later on with kelly. >> yeah, hosting with kelly ripa. looking forward to it. down to the temperatures trend in new england. 51 in new york. it will be 38, 39 by tonight. a chilly night. by saturday morning, maybe some mountain snow going on in new england. a little mix in boston. 36 for tonight's low. get ready for the falling temperatures. the heavy rain into the northwest. there's been days and days of soaking rain. look at the bull's eye here. this is the heaviest rain. it's about 8 inches possible. they're calling for what they think will be flooding tapped real possibility of mudslides.

>> reporter: good morning to you. it is a headache for those traveling on i-70 right now. eastbound we have an accident with injuries and about one mile before you reach 695. we are blocking one lane now which is good news considering the damage has been done. as you can see from the live shot traffic very slow getting by and a major backup. if you plan to travel eastbound i-70 you may want to get off on 29 southbound and head to baltimore national pike getting you over to the beltway sooner. in the meantime, traveling in the city police have shut down biddle street closed between greenmount and brentwood with fire activity and a live look at west side of 695 not too bad here at baltimore national pike. thanks fortuning in. and keep it on abc2 --
